Lapo is now completely reconciled to staying on.....after finding a case of Booster Juice in his bed.....

Swallowing all that pride and anger. Giving up his dream job to coach Canada's Team to honour a dreary contract.

You know, the word "hero" gets thrown around a lot but....

They are still clinging to the notion that the Bombers are evil and that Lapo is a hostage. I love it. In a week or so they will hire a coach and throw Lapo to the wolves by telling everyone they dodged a bullet by not getting permission to hire Lapo so that they could hire (insert new HC name here).

Then if he quits, he quits.  He still won't coach the Riders. You're quoting Rider freaking Stronson????? Is he even relevant?

I think you may have missed how much sarcasm was dripping from that post...

Whatever you don't mention the Franklin FA debacle.

That'll get you banned. Stronson was on an incredible run of his "inside sources" being completely out to lunch last year and he starter ban hammering anyone who brought it up.

Yea....Stronson has about as much inside information on the CFL as my poodle does.

The delusion over there is so thick.....

They actually think the Lapo thing is not done yet and that they still have a chance to get him to come to the Riders...

Others are now wanting Glanville... why would Hamilton say yes after Ottawa and Winnipeg denied. Hire from within. Spend the year fumbling and bumbling around. Axe the guys you dont want next year and rebuild. Is it really that difficult to comprehend?

Well then..... all the power to them!

He is 69-93 as a HC in the NFL and college. And hasnt been a HC since 09.

Those stats look like what the riders points for-against will look like after a few games next year. 

7-11 season for the priders coming up. You heard it here first!

Really thought that RF would be less entertaining with Jones gone.   Freely admit that I was wrong......

I wish I knew how to do GIFs on here. Stronson reminds me of Cartman "Do not question my authoritah!"

I too have gazed into my crystal ball regarding the Riders and it is bleak....very bleak.

Who is going to QB the Riders?

Biggest reason they wanted Elizondo is they thought he would bring Trevor Harris (pending FA) with him....now, that's pretty much shot. They're going to have a mess of a time, and I wouldn't be surprised to see Kevin Glenn starting there on Day 1. No way Reilly wants to go there with the mess they've got.

read this on Twitter this morning and snorted....not sure there's a GD thing over there I'd want in exchange for Lapo at this point, and I honestly don't think Lapo is all that important...

2020 and 2021 1st round picks, 2022 3rd round pick that becomes 1st round if Lapo wins a Grey Cup with the Riders in 19, 20 or 21.

 

That would be my offer.  The only reason I care about Lapo heading elsewhere at this juncture is he knows all the secrets that would be useful to another team in free agency, draft etc.
